NASCAR At Michigan Weather Forecast And Schedule: Chance Of Storms Threatens Race Day

On Sunday afternoon, the Quicken Loans 400 is scheduled to take place at Michigan International Speedway as part of NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series. However, the event may be threatened due to a cold front, which is expected to bring scattered showers and storms.

Despite the threat of uncooperative weather, it appears as though the showers will clear out prior to the start of the race on Sunday. Saturday is expected to be a hot and sunny day for the Sprint Cup and Nationwide qualifying as well as the Nationwide race. The issue will come late Saturday night when the aforementioned cold front ushers in a narrow band of showers and storms, which is expected to hit Sunday morning and clear out by the afternoon just in time for race time.

Here are the projected weather forecasts for each of this weekend's events:
